Yeah. Here's a better review.
I got the game a few years back. I admit that it was slow getting into it, but once you start getting deeper into the storyline, it is really a great game. Sure, you can't save the game yourself which leads to you having to restart the level. What fun is a game without a little challenge? That was one of the many things about the game that I really enjoyed. Yes, you can only take one character at a time. This makes it a helluva lot more interesting. Remember that bit about a little challenge? And I never had any problem with the controls. Never once had to fight with them. Sounds like someone is just an inept gamer. Overall, I give this game a well deserved 10 of 10. Too bad they never did the sequal. If I still had my old console I would be playing this game right now.
DON'T BUY THIS GAME
I purchased this game last year and I HATE it. The storyline is great, but the gameplay sucks. You can only take one character at a time and if you get killed during the mission you have to start all over. There is no way to save your progress. Elder Scrolls is alot better. This game however, sucks. Not enjoyable at all. The graphics was great, but the developer was very lazy. Word of advice, if you are a developer, at least try making a game that people will enjoy playing. If players have to fight with the controls to make a game work, it really isn't worth buying or playing. I would not even recommend renting this game. I wouls trade it in to get a "REAL" rpg, but I probably wouldn't get anything for it. What a waste of money. Crap. Beware buyer.
